Sheffield Dialogue today announced the launch of Envelos, a hosted mobile Internet messaging service delivering solutions to both Mobile and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and enterprises sending high volumes of traffic. Based on Dialogues carrier class e3 servers, the new service gives customers instant access to a robust platform from which they can offer value-added services.

This service bridges the gap between fixed and mobile worlds allowing web-based businesses to push information to their mobile customers or employees. With Envelos, Dialogue customers can develop a range of offerings such as adding text and multimedia messaging capability to a web site based on the SMS (Short Messaging Service) and WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) standards. The service is targeted at organisations that want to outsource their infrastructure requirements freeing them from capital expenditure and in-house resourcing.

Envelos is proving a great hit, we are already signing up customers who are offering a bewildering number of innovative and exciting services, said Paul Griffiths, Dialogue Communications marketing director. We believe Envelos will quickly establish itself as the power behind some of the most exciting global brands delivering a new generation of products.

Envelos is a highly scalable service capable of handling accounts sending from a few thousands to millions of messages a month. Based on flexible technology, it supports all major mobile Internet messaging protocols and has the in-built security required for transactions by international financial institutions. Detailed audit reports and itemised invoicing enables easy rebilling to subscribers.

The service will soon incorporate new features based on Dialogues WAP email and latest m-commerce solution, which enables WAP sites to automatically recognise the telephone numbers of incoming calls and make a reverse charge for services directly onto the subscribers phone bill.

Sheffield-based Dialogue Communications is a world leader in the development and implementation of mobile data and Internet messaging solutions. The companys technology bridges the gap between the fixed and mobile worlds delivering carrier class platforms and services to both service provider and enterprise customers around the globe.
